|PICTURES FROM THE PROVIDED POWER POINT|
- Students need a blank sheet.
- Students need to see the picture you/they describe at the end of the task
Level: Some of the pictures provided might be difficult to describe. Use or find pictures that cover vocabulary seen in class. Whatever the level, students should know prepositions/expressions of location (to the left, underneath..)
Remember, click Power Point if you want to use the provided options.
First STEP: Model the task
- Pre teach necessary" location" vocabulary (background, to the left, to the right, underneath …) and/or mime necessary vocabulary (wheelchair for first picture, for example) as you describe the pictures.
- Describe any of the pictures in the Power Point (or any other from the text book). Students should not see the picture until the end of the task.
- Show the picture
- Students compare their pictures and decide if they missed something or misunderstood something
Option A) Students can create a short text responding questions about the picture. Some possibilities are:
What are the characters thinking/saying?
Why are they there?
What are they going to do next?
Option B) Most students sit with their back to the board so that they don't see the projected picture.
- One or two students, facing the board and watching the picture (from a print or the projector), describe a picture to his/her/their classmate(s)
- Students compare their pictures and the projected picture.
REMEMBER: The teacher can use one of the pictures included in the power point, a picture from the textbook or bring his/her own picture.
